President Ruto on Tuesday arrived in Seoul, South Korea, for a three-day official State visit on the invitation of his counterpart Yoon Suk Yeol.
Ruto’s first meeting on Tuesday will be with the Kenyan community living in South Korea, according to a press release by State House.
During his visit, Ruto will also hold bilateral talks with President Yoon and attend a business forum where he will market Kenya as a suitable investment destination for foreign investors.
“Kenya is keen on expanding economic ties with the East Asian nation and exploring areas of cooperation, especially in ICT, education, pharmaceutical and infrastructure,” State House said.
Ruto’s visit is also expected to open up job opportunities for tech-savvy youth in both countries.
Prior to his South Korea visit, the President visited the Democratic Republic of Congo where he held talks with his counterpart Felix Tshekedi.
Ruto and Tshekedi on Monday agreed to form a joint committee to define the areas of cooperation, with a focus on security, trade and investment.
Ruto also reiterated Kenya’s commitment to the peace process in the Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.
